Hi Morsgrans,

 

I was just able to find it by going to the T430 driver page, selecting Component = ThinkVantage Technology.  An alternative method, although more time consuming, was scrolling down and selecting "view all" followed by searching the page for the word "Active".

THis is a very old story, still unresolved. I reported that the The Active Protection System has been mising from the driver matrices back in January. See my own thread in this forum:

Hello,

 

These are the supported versions for all ThinkPads:

 

32-bit: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds101987

64-bit: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds101991

 

Admittedly older systems are not listed on the download webpages however they are listed under Legacy Models in the README files.  I have passed on a request for the legacy system list to be moved to the download pages and in turn for these to be included in the model matrices.

What good is it being put back into the driver matrices if it is not also put back into the System Update catalog. I reported months ago that it had been removed from the R61, R500 and T500 catalogues. 

 

I have been waiting for over a year for this to be fixed!

Update:

 

The latest 64 bit version of ThinkVantage Active Protection System for Windows 7 is back in the Driver Matice for the R61, R500 and T500. Those are my machines. I have not checked any further. The 32 bit version is still missing from the same driver matices. I will check the system update catalog soon.
